Safety with Sam™ | Youth Personal Safety

Personal safety can be an emotionally stressful topic, and for some of us, it can be pretty overwhelming too. In Safety with Sam™ | Youth Personal Safety, Sam walks you through the core personal safety basics and goes over scenarios that help you feel more confident about your choices in public spaces. Sometimes, a shift in the way we think about personal safety is all it takes for us to be realistic about the possibilities of danger and safely respond to them, or avoid them completely.
